During our last visit to Disneyland, we couldn’t resist trying their pair of limited-time Halloween Time drinks — the Maleficent Frappuccino (which we told you about recently) and the Dr. Facilier Elixer.
We first tried the Maleficent Frappuccino — a blueberry and vanilla bean creme frappuccino blended with diced dragon fruit and topped with matcha tea whipped cream.
We thought the three flavors blended well and tasted very fruity. The diced dragon fruit was finely blended, and we didn’t get any sips with small chunks of the fruit. The drink had a pleasant aftertaste, as the taste would fade softly after each sip. It honestly tasted a bit like Smarties candy to us! We could easily taste the matcha tea from the whipped cream, but it wasn’t overbearing and nicely complemented the flavors of the frappuccino itself.
Overall, it’s a fun drink that will definitely draw some stares and looks from passersby! Prices vary depending on which size you order, ranging from $5.19 for a tall drink to $6.49 for a venti (before an Annual Passholder discount).
We also tried the Dr. Facilier Elixer, which is a layered chai tea and lemonade iced beverage, topped with a splash of passion fruit tea.
Before mixing it up, we could easily taste the bitterness of the tea, sour flavor from the lemonade, and sweetness from the passion fruit tea. Mixed together, these flavors were great! If you’re into Arnold Palmers, this drink will likely be a hit for you as long as you don’t mind a sweet, tropical twist to it. We love the color of the Dr. Facilier Elixer as well!
Like the Maleficent Frappuccino, the price of this drink will vary as well, ranging from $4.79 for a tall to $5.79 for a venti. As far as we know, both of these drinks are only available until next week, so head on over to the Starbucks locations in Disneyland or Disney California Adventure to try one for yourself!
